On this day, I call for a union! The Argent Dawn and the Order of the Silver Hand will come together as one! We will succeed where so many before us have failed! We will take the fight to Arthas, and we will tear down the walls of Icecrown! The Argent Crusade comes for YOU, Arthas!
- Tirion Fordring

Argent Crusade

The Argent Crusade is a faction created from the union of the Argent Dawn, a few survivors of the Scarlet Crusade who didn't follow Abbendis to Northrend, and the Reformed Order of the Silver Hand.

It was formed shortly after the Battle for Light's Hope Chapel, as played out during the death knight quest N [55] The Light of Dawn, in which Tirion Fordring — leader of the reformed Silver Hand — reclaimed (and evidently purified) the Ashbringer during a confrontation with the Lich King. He assumed a leadership position over the Argent Dawn and united the two factions in order to take the fight against the Lich King to Northrend.

According to the quest N [80] Tirion's Help, Tirion Fordring handpicked every paladin member in the Argent Crusade in order to avoid infiltration by the Cult of the Damned. This was presumably to prevent a repeat of the Inigo Montoy incident, which resulted in Naxxramas returning to Northrend and Kel'Thuzad regaining corporeal form.

It should be noted that, despite the new Tabard the Argent Crusade uses, several of their members can be found using the old tabard of the Argent Dawn (this is referring to members of the Argent Crusade faction in Northrend, not the Argent Dawn members who are found in Eastern Kingdoms/Kalimdor). Those who wear the old tabard range from the common infantry to the commanders and senior members of the Crusade. This may mean that the two tabards are interchangable in the Crusade, and the old Argent Dawn tabard may still be in production as part of uniform for the members of the Crusade. Avenger Metz, for example, still uses the Argent Dawn tabard instead of the newer Argent Crusade one.


The main front-line encampment of the Argent Crusade appears to be at the Argent Vanguard, on the border between the Storm Peaks and Icecrown. A few other camps include:


Reputation with the Argent Crusade can be gained by completing the following daily quests.

Reputation can also be gained by purchasing [Tabard of the Argent Crusade]1g from Aliocha Segard in the Argent Vanguard. This tabard, while worn in level 80 dungeons, awards 2 to 30 reputation per mob depending on its difficulty and 300 reputation per boss to your standing with the Argent Crusade.

Also six quests at the Argent Tournament once you reach a high enough rank. Note that these quests will give Knights of the Ebon Blade reputation instead for Death Knights.

Patch changes

In Cataclysm

World of Warcraft: Cataclysm This section concerns content exclusive to Cataclysm.

In World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, the Argent Crusade will strengthen its presence in the Plaguelands, claiming not only outposts formerly held by the now-defunct Argent Dawn (such as Light's Hope Chapel), but also the former Scarlet Crusade town of Hearthglen, and the four towers through the Eastern Plaguelands, around which the plague has receded.

There are quests available which give Argent Crusade reputation originating both from Hearthglen and from the nearby Northridge Lumber Camp, which was also reclaimed from the Scarlet Crusade.
